Women power-A A +A
Thursday, March 20, 2014
POET William Ross Wallace once said, “The hand that rocks the cradle is the hand that rules the world.”
This adage suggests that women, particularly mothers, have a decisive influence on the future direction of society because they raise and nurture the next generation.
The indispensable role of women in the community and the society will be highlighted in the art exhibition dubbed, “Inspiring Change,” which opens today, 2 p.m. at the Negros Museum in Bacolod City.
In celebration of the International Women’s Month, the exhibition will feature about 50 artworks of various Negrense women artists.
Some of the works were displayed last week in an exhibition titled “Duag sa Bakolod (Color of the Hills)” at the People’s House (formerly Government Center).
In cooperation with Arti Kuriti, Galleria Verde, Public Affairs Office, Provincial Tourism Office, and The Dream Project PH, the exhibit will be opened with a screening of the documentary film, Girl Rising, a global campaign for girl's education, according to Cristine Mansinares, supervising tourism operations officer of the Provincial Capitol.
“Inspiring Change” exhibit will run until March 27.
